Stem Cell Therapy Repairs Parkinson’s Degeneration in Mice, Study Shows

Human stem cells can repair Parkinson’s disease-damaged neural circuits and restore motor function in mice, a recent study found.

The study, “Human Stem Cell-Derived Neurons Repair Circuits and Restore Neural Function,” was published in the journal Cell Stem Cell.

Stem cells are able to continuously divide and transform into other types of cells. Because of this ability, stem cells have gained interest as treatments in a number of fields, including regenerative medicine for neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s.

Stem cell therapy uses stem cells to cultivate new and healthy cells, tissues or organs, that are then transplanted back into patients to restore physiological functions lost to damaged or dead cells.

In the context of neurodegenerative diseases, the basic concept is that stem cells could be used to “replace” brain nerve cells (neurons) that become damaged during the course of the disease.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison now investigated a stem cell treatment in a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease and found that neurons derived from stem cells can integrate into the correct regions of the brain, connect with native neurons, and restore motor functions.

“Neurological injuries usually affect specific brain regions or specific cell types, disrupting circuits. In order to treat those diseases, we have to restore these circuits,” Su-Chun Zhang, MD, PhD, a professor of neuroscience and neurology at UW–Madison’s Waisman Center, said in a press release.

In an attempt to repair damaged neural circuits, the team began by developing two types of neurons from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs): dopaminergic neurons — those that are responsible for producing dopamine, a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in regulating motor function — or glutamate-producing neurons. Glutamate is another type of neurotransmitter, or chemical messenger, that plays an important role in learning and memory.

These hESC-derived dopaminergic neurons were transplanted into Parkinson’s mice to two midbrain areas, the striatum and the substantia nigra, which are involved in motor control and severely affected in Parkinson’s.

Six months after transplantation, grafts from both types of neurons were present in all animals, showing that the transplanted neurons were able to differentiate to respective neuronal types and also project to different brain regions.

Upon examination of mice brain sections, months after being transplanted, researchers found that transplanted neurons were able to establish neural connections (synapses) with neurons from the hosts’ brains, suggesting extensive graft integration into the host circuitry.

To understand the specific patterns of distribution of transplanted dopamine-producing neurons, researchers genetically labeled those cells, which allowed them to follow them visually as they grafted and matured in the hosts’ brains.

Six months later the team observed that transplanted neurons exhibited physiological and functional characteristics from native neurons. Also, grafted neurons received inputs from different brain regions in a pattern similar to native neurons in a location-dependent manner (i.e., depending on the site where they were transplanted).

The team then examined the functional effect of transplanted cells, using different motor tests, before and every four weeks after transplant.

Mice that received dopamine-producing neurons in their striatum or substantia nigra began to recover motor function as soon as three months after being transplanted. In contrast, animals that were transplanted with neurons that produced glutamate did not recover from motor deficits.

These results show that the identity of the grafted neurons, rather than the site they home to, determine their own signaling characteristics and functionality, highlighting the need for the correct cell types for cell therapy.

Finally, to determine whether the observed motor recovery depended on the reconstructed neural circuit, scientists used something called a bi-directional switch; transplanted neurons were genetically modified so they could be switched on or off when exposed to certain chemicals.

When the transplanted dopaminergic neurons were “shut down,” motor improvements no longer were observed, suggesting that these cells were responsible for the restoring the damaged connection in animals’ brains.

Based on these results, researchers believe cell-based therapy to treat neurological conditions is a realistic goal. However, they recognize that more research is necessary to translate findings from mice to people.

To that end, Zhang’s group is currently testing similar treatments in primates, a step toward human trials.

New Capricor Data Reports 100 Percent Survival in Critical COVID-19 Patients Treated with CAP-1002

LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capricor Therapeutics (“Capricor”) (NASDAQ: CAPR) a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of first-in-class biological therapeutics for the treatment and prevention of diseases, announced today new data reporting 100 percent survival in critical COVID-19 patients who were treated with Capricor’s lead asset, off-the-shelf (“allogeneic”) cardiac cell therapy CAP-1002, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as part of six compassionate care cases.

Over the course of one month, six critically ill COVID-19 patients, all suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and five of whom were on mechanical ventilatory support, were safely treated with CAP-1002. Of the six patients treated, four of them have been discharged. Following a review of the available data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Company’s expanded access protocol to treat up to 20 additional COVID-19 patients. There is also a randomized, placebo-controlled trial planned to treat patients with moderate and severe disease which is intended to be funded by non-equity capital.

In the compassionate care cases, five male patients and one female patient (between ages 19 and 75) suffering from COVID-19 received IV infusions of 150 million allogeneic cardiosphere-derived cells (CAP-1002). Of the five patients on ventilator support, four patients no longer required ventilator support within just one to four days following the infusion. The fifth patient remains on mechanical ventilation and the sixth patient is receiving supplemental oxygen and is currently clinically stable. Additionally, laboratory biomarkers correlated with poor outcomes were measured in all patients. Following infusion, several patients showed improvements in biomarkers, such as ferritin, absolute lymphocyte counts and CRP. No adverse events related to the administration of CAP-1002 were observed. This data has been submitted for publication.

CAP-1002 demonstrates immunomodulatory properties. Multiple published peer-reviewed studies of CDCs have demonstrated favorable modulation of various inflammatory cytokines and regulation of the immune response. The current understanding of COVID-19’s later stages are thought to be due to overstimulation of the immune system, which triggers a cytokine storm in which the body is overwhelmed with pro-inflammatory molecules. This immune response may become excessive and pathologic, inducing pneumonia, organ failure and death. Therefore, it can be the body’s overreaction to COVID-19, rather than the virus itself, that delivers the fatal blow.

“As the global medical community continues to come together in its battle against COVID-19, the results of our initial compassionate care cases are extremely promising and what we had anticipated. We look forward to continuing to treat additional patients under our recently approved expanded access program Investigational New Drug application,” said Dr. Linda Marbán, Ph.D., CEO, Capricor. “CAP-1002 is an easy-to-deliver intravenous therapy that has been administered successfully to over 150 patients to date. Given its novel mechanism of action, it could be a potential game-changer in helping countless COVID-19 patients.”

Capricor is also in late-stage clinical development of CAP-1002 for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). In DMD, the lack of dystrophin produces abnormal inflammatory responses, which are responsible for much of the damage to skeletal and cardiac muscle. The Company has previously announced that top-line results of HOPE-2, a randomized, placebo-controlled study, will be released by mid-May 2020.

Capricor Therapeutics Soaring After Reporting 100% Survival Rate for COVID-19 Patients Treated With Its CAP-1002 Drug Candidate

12:05 PM EDT, 04/29/2020 (MT Newswires) — Capricor Therapeutics (CAPR) has nearly tripled in price on Wednesday, recently climbing 182%, following the US Food and Drug Administration approving expanded testing of its CAP-1002 drug candidate after the company reported new data from a preliminary trial showing a 100% survival rate in critically ill COVID-19 patients treated with the cardiac cell therapy.

Six COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome, including five patients on mechanical ventilators, received intravenous injections of CAP-1002 under compassionate care guidelines over 30 days. All six patients survived, Capricor said, with four of the patients no longer needing ventilator support within four days of their initial treatment and have since been discharged. One of the remaining hospitalized patients is still using a ventilator while the other is receiving supplemental oxygen, it said.

The new trial will enroll up to 20 COVID-19 patients, with the company also planning for a randomized, placebo-controlled trial it expects will be funded by non-equity capital. Capricor also has submitted the initial trial data for publication.

34 Mayo Clinic Regenerative Medicine Clinical Trials

FDA to Athersys: Design of large stem cell trial looks good

September 28, 2016  – Government controllers have told Athersys Inc. that the outline of its arranged Phase 3 clinical trial looks great.

So if stir patients in the trial react well to Athersys’ grown-up undeveloped cell treatment, the organization ought to have the capacity to apply for the privilege to start offering MultiStem – which would be the organization’s first item. The Cleveland organization intends to enlist 300 patients in the Phase 3 trial.

Getting outline endorsement from the U.S. Nourishment and Drug Administration is a “noteworthy achievement” for Athersys, CEO Gil Van Bokkelen said in a news discharge reporting the understanding. The endorsement was made under a Special Protocal Assessment, which must be adjusted if both the FDA and the organization consent to the adjustments in composing, or if “the FDA gets to be mindful of a significant investigative issue crucial to item viability or security,” the discharge expressed, refering to an industry direction record from the FDA.

Van Bokkelen said that the SPA “unmistakably characterizes the advancement and administrative pathway for the endorsement of MultiStem cell treatment for the treatment of ischemic stroke.”

Athersys points “to be set up to dispatch the trial in 2017,” he expressed.

In February, Athersys reported that MultiStem performed well in a littler Phase 2 trial including stroke patients. What’s more, on Sept. 12, the organization said that it had gotten authorization to start testing the grown-up immature microorganism treatment on stroke patients in Japan, which has brought down the administrative hindrances to commercializing undifferentiated cell treatments. The Japanese trial is intended to supplement the Phase 3 trial, which is being known as the MASTERS-2 trial. That stands for MultiStem Administration for Stroke Treatment and Enhanced Recovery Study-2.

“The SPA is vital in elucidating and de-taking a chance with a quickened improvement pathway for us since it implies that the fruitful consummation of the MASTERS-2 trial, together with other accessible clinical information, could empower us to apply for promoting endorsement in the United States,” Van Bokkelen expressed in the discharge.

“With this objective now accomplished, we will proceed with the procedure of engagement with the FDA, European and Canadian controllers, and additionally the numerous locales that have communicated an enthusiasm for taking an interest in the study, to finish other essential exercises preceding trial start,” he said.

Paralyzed Patients in Stem Cell Study Regain Some Movement, Company Says

Upgrade Sept. 23: You can read our unique post about the striking instance of Kris Boesen after this redesign. In any case, a few information on the trial that Boesen is taking an interest in was discharged a week ago by Asterias Therapeutics, the organization that built up the immature microorganisms infused into Boesen and different patients with cervical spinal line wounds.

Asterias says the trial results to date are empowering. The example is still to a great degree little and nothing is truly demonstrated now, yet the information are unquestionably positive for different patients other than Boesen.

There are two gatherings of patients: three who got a measurements of 2 million undifferentiated cells and five who got a bigger dosage of 10 million.

To gauge change, specialists utilize the Upper Extremity Motor Scale, or UEMS. The scale keeps running from zero, which shows add up to loss of motion, to five, which implies a patient has dynamic development.

The outcomes:

In the first place companion, 2 million undifferentiated cells infused: On the six-point UEMS scale, one of three patients enhanced one engine level on one side of the body, while the other two patients enhanced one level on both sides.

Second companion, 10 million immature microorganisms: One of four patients enhanced two levels on both sides. Two different patients indicated two levels of change on one side. Also, the fourth patient enhanced one level on one side. (One of the five patients in this gathering has not yet achieved the 90-day time when results are measured, so no give an account of that patient yet.)

The other noteworthy discovering, Asterias said, is that nobody demonstrated any quantifiable negative impacts of the treatment — analysts began with the littler dosage to ensure patients weren’t hurt by the trial, then went to the higher 10-million-cell measurements.

Specialists have said the ideal measurements target is 20 million cells, however that point has not been come to yet in the trial.

The following point of reference for getting a clearer photo of the outcomes will be at the six-month point for the second accomplice, in January 2017.

All patients in the trial, being led at six locales around the nation, have either “lost all development beneath their damage site and experience serious loss of motion of the upper and lower appendages,” or “lost all engine work however may hold some negligible tactile capacity underneath their harm site,” as indicated by Asterias.

You can see more data on the study, which is called SCIStar, atClinicalTrials.gov.

Unique post

Bar Boesen says his child, Kris, was so awful off he couldn’t move a muscle starting from the neck, and required a ventilator to keep him drawing breath.

In March, Kris, then 20, was driving on a wet street when he slammed his auto into a tree and a phone survey, pounding three of his vertebrae. The mishap left him with no inclination south of his neck, and specialists anticipated that he would lead the life of a paraplegic.

“They thought he would have been absolutely, from the head on down, incapacitated,” says Rod

Be that as it may, that has not been the situation; Kris has recaptured the utilization of his hands and arms.

‘They thought he would have been absolutely, from the head on down, incapacitated.’

In April, as a major aspect of an examination trial, a surgical group from USC’s Keck Medical Center infused a huge number of embryonic foundational microorganisms into Boesen’s spine. After two weeks, Boesen started to demonstrate some change. Following six weeks, he was released and returned home to Bakersfield, California to proceed with his restoration.

Presently, five months after the undifferentiated cell infusion, Boesen is amazingly independent, considering the underlying forecast. From bolstering himself to chatting on the telephone to having the capacity to bend the top off a pop container, life is a degree more ordinary than anybody suspected conceivable.

“We used to lift weights, that is something we used to do together,” his father says. “Presently we’re doing that once more. Just it’s significantly less weight.”

The objective of the test undifferentiated cell treatment is to regrow the defensive myelin sheath around every nerve, allowing them to mend. Whether this has happened in Boesen yet is unknown–doctors would need to regulate a spinal tap to discover, and that is hazardous for patients in this condition.

So scientists don’t know yet whether Boesen’s recuperation is because of the infusion of undeveloped cells. Everything they can say is that his advance has been amazing, if not uncommon for this sort of spine harm.

With most spinal wounds, specialists and physical advisors typically hope to see what’s still in place, then attempt to make incremental enhancements. As per usual, individuals don’t recuperate a great part of the development or capacity they’ve lost.

Charles Liu, a neurosurgeon and chief of the USC Neurorestoration Center that is driving the examination, says the objective is not to endeavor to repair the whole vertebral segment, yet to focus on the cervical spine and reestablish neurological capacity.

The other four patients in the partner have demonstrated some advance, however not as much as Boesen, as indicated by Liu. Every individual got one shot of immature microorganisms, and alternate patients got bring down dosages than the 10 million undifferentiated organisms infused into Boesen’s cervical spinal line.

Boesen’s recuperation may have been aided by his young age, and by the way that he got the undifferentiated cell infusion so soon – only five weeks after his pile up, Liu said.

“This is one of a kind, yes,” Liu said of the clinical trial. “Nobody has taken this approach some time recently.”

On the other hand accomplished these sort of results. Liu forewarned that not all spinal damage casualties will profit by this kind of treatment, however he said it offers trust that there might be a solution for some spinal wounds.

Information from patients in the study is set to be discharged on Wednesday.

Paraplegic Man Regains Use of Arms After Pioneering Stem Cell Therapy Clinical Trial

September 19, 2016

Seven months back, 21-year-old Kris Boesen endured an extreme damage to his spinal line in the wake of losing control of his vehicle on a wet street and pummeling into an utility pole. His folks, Rodney and Annette Boesen, were told by doctors that their child would likely rise up out of the mischance a paraplegic, for all time deadened starting from the neck.

In any case, this dismal visualization preceded Kris partook in a spearheading immature microorganism treatment clinical trial where specialists from the University of Southern California’s Keck Medicine Neurorestoration Center in Los Angeles, California, surgically infused extraordinarily formed foundational microorganisms into Kris’ spinal string.

Three months after the surgery, Kris recaptured utilization of both his left and right arm. He is currently ready to finish numerous day by day undertakings that he was beforehand not able to do, for example, nourishing himself, messaging companion’s on his cellphone, composing, working a mechanized wheelchair, and offering embraces to his mom and dad.

The inventive undeveloped cell treatment that fundamentally enhanced Kris’ personal satisfaction includes the transformation of embryonic undifferentiated organisms into a particular sort of cerebrum and spinal string cell called oligodendrocyte begetter cells (OPCs), which are in charge of keeping up sound nerve cell work. As per Charles Liu, MD, PhD, chief of the USC Neurorestoration Center, “Ordinarily, spinal string harm patients experience surgery that balances out the spine however by and large does next to no to reestablish engine or tangible capacity. With this study, we are trying a system that may enhance neurological capacity, which could mean the distinction between being for all time deadened and having the capacity to utilize one’s arms and hands.”

While the subject of undifferentiated organism treatment is still fervently, numerous specialists and researchers feel an immature microorganism treatment clinical trial like the one Kris partook in shed new light on the quantifiable advantages of undeveloped cell examine. The late progressions of neurorestoration and regenerative prescription as they relate to immature microorganism treatment apparently add to these advantages, as they have as of now demonstrated potential for reestablishing neurological capacity in a few patients with serious spinal rope wounds.

Notwithstanding University of Southern California’s Keck Medicine Neurorestoration Center, different organizations that are as of now taking an interest in a developing foundational microorganism treatment clinical trial include:

• Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois

• Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

• Shepherd Center, Atlanta, Georgia

 

WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY?

WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY?

Regenerative solution, also called regenerative immature microorganism treatment, is a remarkable cure for excruciating conditions and wounds that are past the purpose of mechanical repair. The primary center of regenerative treatment are immature microorganisms, or “clear” cells that can develop and transform into any part of the body, recovering quality and dependability for the harmed range. Amid a procedure called self-reestablishment, immature microorganisms imitate into cells particularly intended to develop diverse body parts, for example, blood, skin, and muscle. The phone recharging in the harmed range of the body will permit the recuperating procedure to happen normally and naturally, contrasted with an obtrusive methodology, which can be hazardous.

WHAT ARE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS OF STEM CELL THERAPY?

There are huge advantages with respect to undifferentiated organism treatment. The primary advantage is that foundational microorganism treatment is non-obtrusive, dispensing with the requirement for any kind of surgical system. Any surgical method will include a huge number of dangers, for example, general anesthesia, heart rate breakdown, respiratory issues, and even disappointment of the strategy itself, prompting numerous more confusions. That being said, undeveloped cell treatment is sheltered with a brisk recuperation time, and also no scars or outer harm. Another advantage of undifferentiated organism treatment is that it advances normal recuperating properties in the body. Since undifferentiated organisms are actually happening, the human body will adjust faster to the recuperating procedure and advance characteristic mending elements that the harmed range had needed some time recently.

WHY IS STEM CELL THERAPY THE BEST CHOICE FOR PAIN ELIMINATION & CORRECTION?

Since the primary undifferentiated organism treatment method was directed, more than 80 ailments have been effectively cured by regenerative prescription. The relative speed and simplicity of accepting immature microorganism treatment permits regenerative pharmaceutical to wind up one of the top contrasting options to different types of treatment. A huge number of individuals have been totally recuperated by regenerative drug. Ended up one of them today. Contact the OC Wellness and Physicians facility today to start the procedure.

Stem cell trial aims to provide new therapy for stroke patients

Days after her stroke, Lisa Bryant, 51, of North Augusta, sits leg over leg in a bed at AU Medical Center and composes words she needs to say yet can’t voice on a scratch pad. One of them is “Kick the bucket.”

Her stroke was seen Thursday morning since her five-year-old granddaughter, Chloe, addressed the telephone and told Bryant’s significant other she had fallen.

“On the off chance that it had not been for that, we wouldn’t have this discussion today,” Edward Bryant said.

While Lisa Bryant got a snappy reaction from a rescue vehicle and got a coagulation busting drug and mechanical recovery of a coagulation, and has gained surprising ground physically from that point forward, there is little past restoration that specialists can offer to enhance her manifestations. Yet, that could change contingent on the result of an extensive clinical trial into a sort of undifferentiated cell treatment headed up by an Augusta University agent.

Dr. David Hess, executive of the Department of Neurology at AU, will head up a Phase III worldwide clinical trial for stroke patients utilizing the MultiStem cell treatment to treat ischemic stroke, the organization Athersys said. Not at all like the past Phase II ponder, which extended the treatment window out to 48 hours after the stroke, the study will concentrate on 18-36 hours, which Hess accepts is the best time window. Athersys is leading a comparative clinical trial in Japan in conjunction with the organization Healios.

“That is regularly what they do,” Hess said. “In the event that you need overall enrollment, you must do two trials.”

In view of a concurrence with the Food and Drug Administration, the organization would be cleared to look for endorsement from the FDA to market it if there are sure results from this study.

Dissimilar to the past study, this one has a shorter time window on the grounds that the way the cells are being regulated has changed and won’t require a cell handling focus that additional to the postponement for some focuses in the study.

“They don’t need to be defrosted and numbered,” Hess said. “So now the planning time is 15 minutes though before it was four hours.”

Also, that is a conceivably alluring aspect regarding this approach. It can be solidified and on the rack, accessible when required, and can be given to anybody. Once a finding of stroke is affirmed, it could possibly be directed at any essential stroke focus. There are 1,100 stroke focuses in the U.S. confirmed by The Joint Commission

“Since you have 36 hours, you could course everyone to get this,” Hess said. “That is the upside of it. It doesn’t require tissue-coordinating, it is off the rack, it’s quick, it will be speedier now with the new plan.”

Those that got it in the shorter time window in the past study had less passings and handicaps and less diseases and scientists now trust that while there is some impact specifically on the cerebrum, the treatment’s principle impact could be on regulating the resistant framework, he said.

“It’s really advancing the great parts of the safe framework and alleviating the harmful ones, we think,” Hess said.

The treatment could keep the incendiary reaction that may hurt introductory recuperation and keeping the spleen from conveying those cells and consequently getting to be “depleted,” draining the insusceptible reaction and setting the body up for contaminations like pneumonia taking after the stroke, Hess said. That is an altogether different comprehension from when he started taking a shot at undeveloped cell treatment for stroke patients in 2004.

“You need to take a gander at stroke as a systemic malady, that is the thing that we’ve increased in value,” Hess said. “At the point when the mind is harmed, the entire rest of the body takes after.” The cell treatment, given through an IV, gives that.

“This really has a more extensive target,” Hess said. “The greater part of it is a backhanded impact on the mind.”

He additionally applauded Athersys for staying with it in seeking after subsidizing for the trials in an incredulous domain where financial specialists and organizations fear treatments simply aren’t conceivable.

“Such a large number of organizations fear it and avoid it,” Hess said. That is especially valid for the cell-based treatments.

“You don’t see a considerable measure of players doing cell treatment trials in stroke,” he said. “You can tally the quantity of organizations on the fingers of one hand.”

Indeed, even with positive results, endorsement could in any case be years off. As far as it matters for them, the Bryants have more quick concerns.

They had quite recently come back from a journey to the Caribbean when Lisa Bryant had her stroke. What’s more, now she is anticipating taking another in a month. While her significant other communicated a little hesitance to focus on that, on this issue Lisa Bryant discovered her voice.

“I’m going,” she said, uproarious and clear.
